GUTIERREZ, Melchor  and  ROMERO, Isabel. Resilience, subjective well-being and adolescents' attitudes toward drug use in Angola. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.30, n.2, pp.608-619. ISSN 1695-2294.

The aim of this study was to analyse the relationship among self-esteem, emotional intelligence, social support, resilience, satisfaction with life and adolescents' attitudes toward drug use. Participants were 2506 adolescents (1231 males and 1275 females) aged from 14 to 18 years old (M = 16.40; SD = 1.40). Structural Equation Modeling was carried out to examine de effects of self-esteem, social support and emotional intelligence on resilience, and the effect of resilience on adolescents' satisfaction with life and attitudes toward drug use. Results showed positive effects of self-esteem, family support and regulation of emotion on adolescents' satisfaction with life; and a positive effect of use of emotion on family influence to avoid adolescents' drug use. Additionally, the effects of school support, self-emotion appraisal and others' emotion appraisal on resilience were negative; as well as the effects of resilience on adolescents' satisfaction with life and drug use pleasure. Results are discussed in the positive psychology framework.

Keywords : Self-esteem; social support; emotional intelligence; satisfaction with life; adolescents; alcohol; tobacco; positive psychology.
